The big local attraction is the “Marco Zero”, the line of the Equator. That is where you will find Zerão (the stadium), the sambadrome, and the Amapá Panela (gastronomic complex of typical regional foods). A sundial marks not only the hours, but also the equinox.
On the margins of the Amazon River, a must-see is the beautiful São Jose do Macapá fort, built between 1764 and 1782 to ensure Portuguese dominance in the extreme north of Brazil.
Also in front of the river, don’t miss the Guindaste rock, and the Eliezer Levy dock. The rock displays the image of Saint Joseph, Macapá's patron saint. And the dock has restaurants and a trolley for tourist transportation.
